Snow, icy roads complicate travel

Snow and icy roads complicate travel in parts of the Czech Republic. The Ústí region, in the north-west of the country, is among the worst hit by snowing and some roads have been closed. Trucks have clogged traffic on the road leading to the Czech-German border crossing Hora Svatého Šebestiána in the Krušné Mountains; the authorities have asked drivers to exercise extra caution while driving on the D1 motorway between Prague and Brno.
